Laura and Chris: Kiddo Table Numbers

Laura and Chris Mike are high school sweethearts that found their way back to each other after college. Their beautiful fall wedding took place in October 2012 back at home, in Pennsylvania, surrounded by the people they love most in the world - both of their families.

Their wedding was full of touches of their love story and the things that make them joyful - like their favor: a custom made Pittsburgh Steelers "terrible towel" customized with their names. 

For this amazing celebration, I worked with Laura to create Table Numbers that would speak to hers and Chris's connection to and love of family.

So I designed these vellum Table Number displays for each table that showcase special baby photos and little kid photos of Chris and Laura. For such a family-oriented wedding, these were the perfect way to invite guests to think back and celebrate on their original cuteness and how far they've come on their wedding day.

These displays are my favorite type of wedding project: inexpensive, unexpected, and high impact. They are comprised from vellum paper, clear acrylic document holders, and tea lights that gave each number a gorgeous glow.

From Laura:

"We loved having our custom table numbers there to draw our guests into the room. Guests enjoyed meandering through the tables to see all of the old photos.

For us, it was most important for our day to be a celebration with our friends and family. Our table numbers added to our celebration of life and love and the union of our families."

Laura and Chris's wedding is a wonderful example of how even a very traditional, family wedding tells an extraordinary and special story. The Table Numbers, the terrible towel, and other details invited their guests to experience a day and celebration unique to them with fun, unexpected touches. I'm so honored to have been a part of sharing their love story, and some of these baby photos were pretty priceless to see!
